    Focus Assist not enabling automatically


    When I'm playing Star Conflict, it doesn't get recognized and focus assist doesn't get enabled as configured. It's especially annoying because 1. VLC shows a notification every time a new track is played and 2. It"s the only program that I've ever used where the Windows key doesn't work, so I can't just use Win+A and turn it on without pausing.
    Any help with ANY of these issues/annoyances would be greatly appreciated!

    :)

    Focus Assist not enabling automatically

    Windows focus assist


    Focus Assist is nicely explained in this Windows Blog item from Elana Pidgeon "Windows 10 Tip: How to enable Focus Assist in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update" (May 2018):

    "Focus Assist helps you get more done by easily blocking notifications, sounds, and alerts to create distraction-free work times. This is helpful if you’re giving a presentation or trying to focus on a paper, you can use Focus Assist to block interruptions or distractions."
    Check out the preceding link for more information on the tool, along with instructions for enabling/disabling this setting.

    HTH,
